Laporta opens doors for Messi to return to Barcelona
Welcome to Lewandowski
“Good morning everyone. It is a historic day. I was able to verify that in the presentation. It was one of those days when the Catalans felt the club more than ever. It is a sign that Barça is more than a club. Thanks for trying to come. It wasn’t easy, but we got there. Starting from you, your agent (Bini Zahavi), Matteo Alemany, Jordi Cruyff… and the efforts of the team. We’re all waiting for your integration because we know it’s special. You have the gift of hitting. You are serious, charismatic, elegant and respectful. You will gain people’s respect. I think this is proof that we are in a new phase of excellence for Barça. We are very proud to have you here.”
Lewandowski left Bayern
“I think he will be a reward throughout his stay at the club. We have already seen the excitement it creates. We have a lot of respect for Bayern and all football clubs.”
“We had the intention of scoring a ‘9’. If a genius came and gave us three wishes, he would have been a goalscorer, a golden boot many times and a goal guarantee. That’s Lewandowski. What happened? I have a very good relationship with his agent (Bini Zahavi). There is. I said to him: ‘Hey, is it possible?’ He said yes, he would love it. We contacted Bayern right away. I think Matteo did an extraordinary job of talking to people at Bayern. Working as Matteo, with great skill and discretion. Meeting in various places. When I saw that Bayern had a forecast, it was A question of sizes. Mateu moves like a fish in water there. Work with someone very talented like Jordi Cruyff. There were many video calls. Robert was also thinking about signing him. I consoled them. We told them if we could sign only one person, it would be him. There were other clubs that offered more money and I am happy and grateful for that. When they are willing to come in this situation. When they do it despite the pressure from other clubs…Barça made a big effort and thanks to the will of Robert and his agent. was paid.
“It’s a club decision. For reasons of interest to the club, for image, for publicity. We thought it was the right decision. Much respect to Memphis.”
Relationship with Bayern
“It is good in my view. Alemany concluded the deal by consensus. We respect them a lot. My relationship with them is good and will always be because we respect them”.
Financial condition of the company
“We are working on getting everyone involved. We have worked harder and better to meet the demands. And if any surgery is required, we will do it. We were waiting. A decision to be taken by the corporation. We’ve got you covered. We are confident that we will be able to register them,” he said.
Turn on the fourth lever, and the other 25% is the sale of Barça Studio
“A fourth is planned. In these two months, Barça have entered 868 million euros. We also have a healthy balance sheet and income statement. We have made great efforts. We have implemented property functions. We have the option to recover these assets. We are changing that situation. We’re out of the hospital and we’re getting better. I am very satisfied”.
Today marks one year without Messi
Today is a historic day for Barca. We are all proud that a player of his caliber wanted to come. This means we are in good shape. In my first phase, they wanted to come here and play. It was easy to come because we had a bunch of players back then. And that’s why I really appreciate that people have come. I see in the market that there is a lot of desire to come here. Because of our history, the way we understand football, our game, the city, La Liga… I think it’s very important to have players like Robert in La Liga. A year ago we had to declare an unnecessary situation as a result of the club’s situation. A year has passed and we can say that we are changing the status quo. We are out of the hospital and we are getting better.
Building a good team
“We are building a great team. It has been a very difficult year. Many important decisions have to be made. A lot of pressure, but we continue to bear it well. We are satisfied with how everything is going. We are constantly working to ensure that the club picks up that cruising speed. These presentations are very exciting. Ronaldinho, Maradona have been here… They may have seen me more excited than expected, but I am.”
